Details


Let me quickly say that I have never been to San Francisco (or even to the United States, yet)+. So the inspiration and challenge for me was, to paint a city that I have never been or seen.

I tried doing some research on the internet to, gleen as much information as possible but in the end, the explosion of information was becoming more of a hinderance than a catalyst. So, after my first few WIPS, I went back to Pat’s photo, and decided that I would look more ‘symbolically’ (as I usually do) at the ‘’Essence of San Francisco" and translate what I felt about this city as an outsider looking through someone else’s image.

By the time I got to the last stage of this painting, it reminded me of my Homesick paintings and how every San Francisco resident must feel when they are seeing, feeling, & crossing the Red Bridge, to a Golden City, with no gates (by the way), on their way home…
